Update: Some offers mentioned below are no longer available. View the current offers here.
Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend that you use Google Flights to find dates to fly, then book through an online travel agency, such as Orbitz or Expedia, which allows you to cancel flights without penalty by 11pm Eastern Time within one day of booking. However, if you’re using the American Express Platinum Card, you’ll need to book directly with the airline or through the Amex Travel portal to get 5x MR points. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Orbitz or Expedia’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to get the time away from work or family.
Looking to escape to a tropical paradise this winter? Look no further than Norwegian's nonstop flights from multiple US cities to the Caribbean, with incredible fares from November through March 2017. Fares are currently available starting from just $198 round-trip from New York (JFK), Boston (BOS) and Baltimore (BWI) to Martinique (FDF) and Guadeloupe (PTP). Availably looks to be pretty open throughout the remainder of the year into 2017.
Keep in mind that Norwegian is a low-cost carrier and will charge you for certain things that are not typically an additional cost on other airlines. However, even with these extra fees, the total cost is still significantly lower than what other carriers are charging for similar flights.
